How do you create a masterpiece of modern metal? Is it a conscious effort on the part of the artists or is it something more organic – a confluence of events and moods, emotions and mechanics that all come together in the right place at the right time? That’s the question that comes to mind upon the first listen to Machine Head’s sixth studio album The Blackening. Guitars ... Read more in Amazon's Machine Head Store

5.0 out of 5 stars The best metal debut ever! 27 Mar 2004
Format:Audio CD
Machine Head will never create a better album than this. From start to finish it is nothing short of superb. I bought it when it first came out and it still sends a tingle down my spine as soon as I hear the beginning of the first track, Davidian. I have bought everything by the band since and seen them live and they remain one of my favourite bands ever! If you are a metal fan you must have this cd! It is state of the art and doesn't get any better than this!

By sean paul mccann VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
it must be gratifying to think that you have released an album that has inspired plenty and still sounds so good some 12 years later,machine head can go to sleep knowing that burn my eyes is that album,it is heavy,raw and packed with a punch but yet in all that it stands as one of metals most melodic and passionate album,it is essential,of that there is no doubt,the band havent really changed their sound and they shouldnt ,they may never do an album as good but we have this and its superb,

5.0 out of 5 stars Immense! 6 Nov 2002
Format:Audio CD
Thats the word that describes this album perfectly! Faster than light drumming and guitar solos that drill their way into your head with such a force that by the time this album is over it has got right into what you are and you HAVE to listen to it again! This album is energising and this album is damn harsh! It throws you off the walls a few times before leaving you a steaming pile of adrenaline on the floor! A must have album for anyone who likes thrash metal or any other hardcore genre! First songs that come to mind that make this album the moster that it is are: Davidian, None But my Own, The Rage To Overcome, Blood For Blood...well...Basically the whole album! This album will convert you to the heavier side of metal if you're not already there! 10 STARS!

Just when thrash was dying out and nu-metal and grunge started kicking in, the Bay Area Boys entered. This is certainly not any normal thrash album heard before, its got a semi-futuristic flow to it, this will become clear once you first hear opening track 'Davidian', crushing and bruising, it churns bizarre distorted riffs before it turns into a fast razor-sharp killing machine, a perfect anthem that's designed for any action movie with car chases. Then it moves onto 'Old' and 'A Thousand Lies' with its sludge-like riffs, there's 'The Rage To Overcome' with its constant super-speed drumming which isn't too disimilar to Davidian. Then there is 'Nation On Fire' which starts off in acoustic fashion you may not have before then blasts peice by peice into arrays of mega-heavy chugs, not before the finale in which it turns into some pure old-school guitar shredding like Morbid Angel and Celtic Frost. Its such a shame you look at Machine Head now, that the heaviness of his music is considerably 'weaker' from what it was, and the fact that he raps in his new songs doesn't help either. So, without further ado, I would to take the opportunity that I can safely say, that this is, was, and forever will be, the greatest Machine Head album ever made.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vinyl is King! 7 Jan 2013
Such a great album. Originally bought on cd when it first came out. But sitting listening to it again on vinyl gives you a new appreciation for the album. Also printed on really good thick quality vinyl and great to see the art work properly too. A must have!

5.0 out of 5 stars Machine Head - Burn My Eyes 20 July 2011
By Gentlegiantprog TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Machine Head's debut album Burn My Eyes was released in 1994 and became and Roadrunner Records' fastest-ever-selling-debut for a time. The album was a refreshing mixture of thrash and groove riffs, with a unique singer and a superbly unique and instantly identifiably style. Call it Post-Thrash or Groove Metal if you like, Burn My Eyes is a terrific metal album in general regardless of how you choose to categorize it.

Burn My Eyes is one of those absolute classic albums that makes it into everyone's lists of best ever metal albums, in the same league as Vulgar Display/Demanufactue/Chaos AD, like all the best almost-accessible but blisteringly heavy 1990s metal.

I have had this album for a very long time, at least a decade and as such have listened to it countless times. One thing has always remained constant over all those years, the opening track `Davidian,' is amazing! I will often claim that it is the single best Machine Head track to date. Sometimes I'll claim it is the best by a slim lead or other times, by a wide margin. Regardless, if you are intrigued by the idea of getting into Machine Head then make it your business to hear that song at once.

If you've only heard newer material, it may surprise you when you hear how different Rob Flynn's voice is. Back in 1994 he didn't do any of the clean or rap style vocals found on later albums, but even his normal voice is hugely different too, which may surprise some. What else may surprise you is the sheer aggression to be found on the cd, the album is ferocious to a degree practically unparalleled in the rest of the band's discography.

At first; you may dislike Burn My Eyes at a gut level, it may seem unusual and you won't understand how it attained such a revered status.

5.0 out of 5 stars bes debut ever 25 Nov 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
burn my eyes came into existence exactly ten years after metallica's seminal 'ride the lightning' album. it beautifully shows how you can develop the thrash metal sound into many new places without losing it's roots. for all the hiphop biohazard-esque rhythms on old and block and the melodic edges of a nation on fire and i'm your god now you're still pumped to boiling point by classic metal tracks such as davidian and a thousand lies. gut churning guitars, life defining solo sections and robert flynn's deranged bark make this an absolutely essential listen for anyone who is into metal.
Quite interestingly, it seems almost as if <M|H>'s career is now mirroring Metallicas with each album.

Having gotten into metal in the early 2000s, I had long dismissed Machine Head as being a Nu-Metal band, based on their output at the time, so I never gave them a second thought. Read more
